Volunteer of the Week

Linda Hughes
Birchwood Community Center

How could the Birchwood Heights Community Center in East Durham manage without Linda? Throughout the year, Linda serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner and coordinates the food pantry. She manages the community garden, helps clean and paint the center and plans the community events.

Linda comes to the Center every day, eager to work and care for others, ready to help in any way she can. Her supervisor says that Linda "creates a positive experience every time she enters the center." Linda's supportive attitude, hard work and the high standards she sets for herself and for her community make her an essential part of the Birchwood Center's success.
